For most of our lives, we’ll have various favorite colors – as children, this is a very important distinct, and though it grows less pertinent in adulthood, many people still maintain their love of a few hues. Unsurprisingly, weddings have favorite colors as well: that is, popular nuptial tones shift with the seasons. Certain times of the year simply evoke thoughts of particular colors, perhaps associated with memories and feelings associated with those months. As we enter into December, many are beginning to get into the holiday spirit – though some have been celebrating since long before Thanksgiving – and this season’s weddings are becoming a reality to brides and grooms everywhere.

For those hosting a wintertime event, the color scheme is vital in conveying the particular vibe you and your beloved are going for with your décor. Though many different hues can work during December, January, and February, we believe that the following four are the most special and work on many different levels. 

WHITE

Hosting all-white nuptials is incredibly classic. Though it matches the color of snow, the tone works best with winter weddings because of its innocence and novelty – it essentially represents a new beginning, much like the new year and your marriage to your sweetheart. Elegant winter weddings featuring white or ivory as the main color are sure to embody the purest opulence.

GOLD

What could be more regal during the holiday season? Gold as the center hue adds extra spice to a classic wedding, elevating it even further. This tone is particularly perfect for city weddings, for their sophistication, but can also pair well with rustic-chic décor as an accent.

BLUE

Darker hues of blue are idyllic for the cooler months, displaying the signature chill in the air in a tangible and graceful way. Pops of color make for a lively event – and what is better than adding some sweet playful energy into your big day? This color works on two levels: sophistication and fun!

RED

Ah, the color of romance. If you’re considering hosting an event with a Christmas motif, but you don’t want to be overly cheesy, emphasize the deep reds and burgundies of your palette. Pops of green are lovely, but keeping the focus on scarlet details will make things extra warm and sophisticated.
